Pokémon Sky Version and Earth Version are the next of the Pokémon series published on Nintendo 3DS, as the first instalments of Generation X, set in the new Desmos region.
It was first announced on 24 August 2013, where it claimed to have a "heavier" plot than previous instalments and a Greek-mythology influence.
Sky and Earth are set in the Desmos region, which is based on the country of Greece, supporting the culture and mythology that have influenced the themes in the game.
Desmos is an ancient establishment, with temples, structures, and ruins scattered throughout the region. The capital, Skaphos, serves as the centre of Desmos' modern technology as it implements modern elements with the ancient foundations. The use of modern technology decreases further out into the rural areas.
Pokémon Sky and Earth was created on the whim of ochibrochi and her long term desire to design a "generic Pokémon game". Through a process of over-thinking, it was decided to be a fully fledged project.
